It's nearly that time of year again when everyone packs into the family vehicle to head to wherever the holiday celebrations take them. Here are some vehicles that can help make your travels more enjoyable:
Chevrolet Tahoe - Ranked the No. 1 large SUV by U.S. News & World Report, the Tahoe has seating for up to nine people and the capability to get through even the nastiest of weather in comfort. A potent 5.3-liter V-8 makes 355 hp and 383 lb/ft of torque, allowing for 8,600 pounds of towing capacity that can help you bring even the largest of presents to Grandma's house. The Chevrolet MyLink system, push-button start, wireless charging and OnStar vehicle telematics are only a handful of the amenities you can add to the big SUV. A high-strength safety cage, seven airbags and available Side Blind Zone Alert and Lane Keep Assist help keep everyone safe.
"The 2016 Chevrolet Tahoe continues the tradition set down by its 4-wheeled forefathers with a new level of refinement and luxury elevating the entire Chevrolet brand," Autotrader noted. "The Tahoe has been a best-seller and is a favorite with American families due to its tough construction, massive interior space and powerful V8 engine, allowing it to tow far greater loads than any car-based crossover"."
Chrysler Pacifica - As the newest minivan on the market, the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica has quickly shot to the top of the U.S. News & World Report rankings and it's easy to see why. In addition to its affordable $28,595 starting MSRP and seating for up to eight, the Pacifica is available with some of the most family-friendly features, including the Uconnect Theater system, which can keep kids busy on even the longest of drives. The 3.6-liter V-6 engine produces a best-in-class 283 hp and 262 lb/ft of torque and is paired with an advanced nine-speed automatic transmission that helps it earn an unsurpassed EPA-estimated 28 mpg highway. Other highlights include Parallel and Perpendicular Park Assist, the Stow 'n Go seating and storage system, and Stow 'n Vac™ powered by RIDGID®.
"But what I love most about the Pacifica," added CNET, "is its unabashed van-ness in a world where everything is a crossover, 'wagon' is a four-letter word and telling your friends that you're considering a minivan is tantamount to announcing that you've given up on life. It warms my heart to see there's still innovation and competition to be found in this shrinking class, and that the form and function can work together."
Subaru Forester - If you don't need a larger vehicle, the five-passenger 2017 Subaru Forester is the perfect companion. Thanks to standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, the Forester can handle nearly anything you throw its way with virtually no penalty to fuel economy, which is rated up to 32 mpg highway. You can choose from two SUBARU BOXER® engines: a 170-hp, 2.5-liter four-cylinder or a 250-hp, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder. Depending on the model, you can equip the Forester with the SUBARU STARLINK™ Multimedia system, EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology and even a Harman Kardon audio system. The Forester earned a five-star overall rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
"Long known as a roomy, sure-footed but slightly dowdy compact crossover, the Forester is more stylish and commodious than before, and it's also much improved in an area that's increasingly important to a majority of buyers: fuel efficiency," summarized Left Lane News.
